Siamang Blend Washed – 1 Kg

Rp250.000

This varietal was introduced to growers in the 1980’s by the ICCRI as an alternative to Robusta. In an effort to educate and encourage growers to plant more Arabica, the government subsidised the price of the seeds and plantlets to landowners. Many people were skeptical, but the varietal performed well and the first harvest of coffee came much quicker than other Arabica varietals. In addition, the harvests intervals increased from twice a year to nearly year round. Hence the name given the varietal “Sigarar Utang” which translates roughly to “paid debts”. In Simalungun, more than 80% of the growers have this varietal on their farms. They also call it “Ateng” which means dwarf, but the varietal has evolved since it’s introduction nearly 30 years ago and some trees, if left unpruned will reach 3 meters or more.
